Ongoing raids by the Rochester Police Department turned up seven illegal guns, including assault rifles.

Police Chief James Shepard says he's concerned, because assault rifles have been used in several recent shootings. Chief Shepard says he believes drugs are involved with these weapons stashes.

One of the men arrested in these raids, was Art Long, of Chili. He was once a local basketball star, graduating from East High.

Long even went onto play for the NBA with Seattle Super Sonics and 76ers.
